Apologies--no camera/microphone. I'm a lecturer in MaST and faculty director of the Learning Resource Center-supporting math department initiatives (tutoring, SI, workshops). I taught calculus this year, so no hands on...yet. We will have an embedded tutor with some of the early start

A note on the Google doc—I’m not sure if other people have this issue, but it’s locked as view-only access

For cat III students, workshops were led by GTAs. These were optional and attendance was a major issue.

To my knowledge, CI does have MS in Math students teaching the coreq's & it's my understanding that they could use more help/coordination/PD/etc.

There are quite a few places outside CA that have been doing corequisites but you are right there is no research around the structure of these courses. It would be great for CA to do some of this research if possible.

We saw that early start students enrolled in their stretch courses at orientation and then dropped later. This year, they will be prevented from dropping (swapping is okay) and they cannot register in any other course until they have enrolled in their stretch course.

Thank you!

I think this was touched on earlier, but since coreq attendance seems to be a significant issue for many campuses, I wonder if campuses have tried scheduling the coreq immediately before/after the GE course to see if this increased attendance?
Stan Yoshinobu
01:18:14
Or require attendance in some way?
Tammi Marshall
01:18:21
This is an IT issue. If a student is placed in the coreq they are required to take the coreq and if they drop the coreq they are dropped automatically from the GE course.

When students perform poorly on an assessment early in the term of a traditional course, they correctly interpret that to mean that they are now in a hole that is very difficult (if not impossible) to get out of. So they tend to give up and stop coming.

It can help greatly if students are able to improve upon those poor performances in some way. For example, allowing them to reflect and do revisions on their work.
Tammi Marshall
01:23:57
That is an excellent point! I love this idea!
Stan Yoshinobu
01:24:06
At Cal Poly, we have the 25-35 motto, and also do work on student buy-in, where the theme is practice is how a person gets better. Not sure how/if this impacts attendance, but it’s part of the solution.

Thanks for the discussion around the attendance issue.

I like those ideas, Stan!

What about a listserve?

01:30:41
A google group can be just an email list too
